John Pecue, a well known and highly respected farmer, died at his home in Ferrisburg Friday morning from the effects of a paralytic shock, sustained some time ago, aged 70 years. Mr. Pecue was a veteran of the civil war and a member of company K, 2d Vermont volunteers. The company was commanded by Capt. Solon Eaton of Addison. Mr. Pecue went to the front in 1861 and participated in the first battle of Bull Run. He is survived by a widow, one son, John, three daughters, Mrs. William Beach and Miss Lillian of Ferrisburgh, and Miss Edith of this city; four brothers, William Pecue of West Ferrisburgh, Anthony Pecue of Addison, Henry Pecue of Rutland and Edward Pecue of Pawlet, and one sister, Mrs. George Wilkins of Willison. The funeral was held at the house yesterday, Rev. H. A. Wood, pastor of the Methodist church of this city, of which the deceased was a member, officiating. Interment was in the Gage cemetery at Ferrisburgh.
